The crew need to be assigned to each item you equip (shields or weapons or armor, regardless).

When you're selecting them, each has two stats: ability and engineering. Ability gives a percentage boost to the item you're equipping, and engineering reduces the CPU cost. That's all they do.

As an example, if a piece of armor has +50% structure points (HP) and 100 CPU cost, after adding a crew member to it, the stats will be changed to +56% HP and 90 CPU cost.

Ha! I thought it read something different. I actually did see that earlier. This is what happens when you multitask.

Awesome about the crew. How about your fleet? Do your support ships fire on the enemy? Can you tell them who to target? Thanks again.

Your second and third ships fire on the enemy automatically and you have no control whatsoever over them. You can equip whatever you like to them though.

The AI is pretty intelligent on both sides, but I found that if I'm in range of enemy ships they will always target me, even if I'm not firing on them. I guess that's logical, since I'm the flagship though.

I haven't had a fleet ship die yet, but they've been slightly damaged in fights do their shield/attack mechanic is pretty solid.

The listed space requirements for this are incorrect, the file is in fact 655 MB, not 232 MB.

They always list them like this, the 232MB is the download size, the 655MB is the actual size of the file after it's unpackaged. I don't know why they don't tell you that actual size of the file but that's why there are always people on these forums asking about install sizes of apps.
